Background

 

From a young age, I was aware of how people with chronic illness can suffer. My mother was diagnosed with Crohn's disease before I was born and endured excruciating symptoms for 15 years. 

The standard conventional medicine approach to Crohn's then was much the same as it is now - prescribe steroids to lessen symptoms and wait until the colon needs to be removed surgically.  

Scientifically valid, effective supplemental and nutritional therapies were scoffed at by her doctors as not worth pursuing. 

The number of patients with chronic illness under my care who have successfully gone into symptom-free remission is a constant reminder of how inadequate a one-dimensional approach to patient care can be.  

I graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College at the age of 23 and have been active in continuing education to ensure that I have the latest tools and resources available. 

I specialize in treating those who are told by other doctors that there is no treatment, who are told that they will helplessly watch their chronic condition progress and there is nothing they can do.  

There is always something that can be done. 

Philosophy

 

Headlines abound that promise 'Gut-health,' 'The One Supplement To Heal Your Joint Pain' and 'The Diet To Heal Your Autoimmune Disease' - giving the impression that you just have to do or buy one thing to heal.  

My new patient appointments are an hour-long because it's all important.

 

Your diet, environment, emotional health, supplements, family history, and patient history since birth - it's all relevant when we are unraveling an illness that, most likely, took decades to create. 

The testing and nutritional medicines you receive will be completely unique to you as a patient.

 

I do not have a 'one size fits all' treatment plan because you are unique, and as you heal we will adjust your treatment based on your renewed health goals.
